The gc deal is dead now. But the phone is still $80 from Walmart and BestBuy.com

It's by far the best and cheapest phone at this spec which works on wind.

This is a very great phone Imo. You can check the feedback on Amazon.com or BestBuy.com.

For this price you won't get a phone with 5.5 720p in Canada. Not to mention it has 2Gb ram and works on wind!

You are incorrect actually. The "ZTE Grand X2 In" has 1gb of ram. The PC Mobile phone is the "ZTE Grand X2 Z850" which has 2gb of ram. Not your fault - ZTE's marketing department is simply terrible.

Full specs: http://www.gsmarena.com/zte_grand_x2-7656.php

I think it is a hot deal if you don't want to buy from the US/China or mess around with cancelling contracts/tabs.

The only downside is there is no proper silicone case. You will need to buy a case for a similar phone and then modify it. The best match that I've found for overall size and camera and speaker placement, is this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/221957614527?_tr ... EBIDX%3AIT

I have this phone which I use on Telus. I paid the $79 price in Florida earlier this year. It actually went down to $69 the following week but I was home by then. I unlocked it for free the way OP recommends. I REALLY like this phone. I also bought a case for it on eBay for $2.99US.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/131663690965?eui ... 19ad7&cp=1

The case is fine but it took more than 6 weeks to arrive. casewill followed up 2X to ask if it had arrived and was ready to send a second one.

The Z Max 2 also has a bigger battery (3000 mAh) than the ZTE Grand X2 (2480 mAh). The Z Max 2 has great battery life.

I use the phone more for emails and a music player other than as a telephone.
I easily get 2 days (sometimes 3) of battery life as a light user.

So are u disputing the point that LTE band 4 is 1700/2100? Because the AT&T website clearly indicates LTE4. If so what are the freqs of LTE4 and include a link.

I can tell you that baz I did have one before. And it will NOT work with WIND.
No root for now and I don't think it can be rooted. ZTE disabled fastboot mode on this model. You can unlock through AT&T and it will work on big three.

You can go ahead and get one but this is my first hand experience.

If you are going to use on big three and don't mind those ATT apps., it is a great phone, cheap, fast, last longer.

LTE4 is not the same as HSPA. While the same 1700/2100 AWS is used, Wind is HSPA only so it won't work

OP, if you're going to be a jerk and rip off someone at SlickDeals' thread and tips to unlock, at least have the decency to provide credit where it is due. This is not your deal, nor your time/effort/work. http://slickdeals.net/f/8672799-at-t-go ... uy-walmart

That being said, if you review the posting the OP ripped off it seems to suggest WIND WILL NOT WORK GIVEN THE BANDS.
